This photo was taken in 1962, as the world watched in awe as John Glenn became the first man to orbit Earth and locals prayed for his safe return. The Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce, Florida was built in 1922, although it has been rebuilt and restored to its current glorious state it still remains an icon to the area. Tonight "Weird Al" Yankovic is performing here. #whpdearphotograph 
Also I wanted to thank @instagram for the feature today! What an honor! Thanks to my new (and old) followers for all the love! You make Instagram much more than a phone app. πŸ’•
